I'm diggin this set! It's so easy to color and get nice results! I started out coloring with my Pure Color Pencils and Gamsol, but couldn't get the right color for the puppy, so I finished him with my Copic Marker E25. Then, my husband told me that those dogs are usually even darker... like black. Black won't match my card stock... like hello? So, brown he is.
I tried to kinda smear the sentiment to make it look distressed, but it didn't turn out like I wanted. I added some highlights with my Chocolate Chip Marker and the White Uni-ball Gel Pen.
I'm trying to use up some of my designer scrap paper. I love this plaid paper from Chatterbox. I only have one tiny piece left now. I'm determined to start using my scraps before my pile takes over my desk.
Here is the recipe:
Stamps: For Father, Phrases for a Friend
Paper: Suede Brown Medium Prism, Whisper White, Chatterbox.
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Whisper White Craft
Other: Pure Color Pencils, Gamsol, Blender Stump, Copic, Ticket Corner Punch, Vintage Brads, Crafter's Tool Kit, Ribbon (unknown)Uni-ball Gel Pen, Chocolate Chip SU! Marker, Scor-Pal.
Three kids on the bus, one to go! I'm so happy everyone is feeling better today. I'm working on the tutorial today! Thanks for being patient. Hope you have a great Wednesday!
